Valentines Dress

Ruthie likes to use this toy as support to walk around the house. She pushes our kitchen chairs all around the kitchen too, but the guy down stairs thought that was a little noisy.

You're Un-frog-ettable

We have had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Justin has been the best father and husband. Last night he went to go get a movie and came back with beautiful tulips for me and a balloon for Ruthie. I thought that was the sweetest thing. At first I told him to not get anything because I wasn't sure if we could afford it this month, but I am so glad he ended up getting something for Ruthie. She loved her little balloon. We ended up shortening the string so it's only a little bit taller than her. Then as if that wasn't enough he made us pancakes for breakfast. We decided that we would go out for lunch instead of dinner because there is always a crazy long wait and we don't like waiting for food. Our plan was to eat at P.F. Chengs but there was an hour and a half wait so we went across the street to Olive Garden where the wait was 5 minutes! It was delicious. They have the best salad and breadsticks.

Reading Ruthie!

The other day I went in the other room and came back to find Ruthie reading my scriptures. We must be doing something right! So she wasn't reading them just flipping through the pages. It was cute none the less. Hopefully this is a sign that she will be a good studier?!

Now where is that verse?

oh ya right here....

Gifts from Grandma

I have the sweetest in-laws. They are always sending us cards and fun packages for birthdays, graduations, and holidays. It makes the holidays and getting the mail much more exciting. We went to our mailbox yesterday and found some valentine packages from Grandma and Grandpa Leavitt. We should have waited till saturday to open them but that is way too long for me! So we opened them right away. Ruthie LOVED her gifts. She got a baby Einstein dvd that teaches signing! I am so excited because I took a signing class in college and loved it so it will be nice to refresh my memory. And hopefully RUthie will pick up the signs quiclyk so we can communicate better. Maybe we can avoid the tears of frustration from both of us! She also got socks and her first valenitnes day card. A lady in her ward made some cute headbands which I was excited to see in the package. I L.O.V.E headbands on babies! Justin and I also got a cute card and a cold stone creamery gift card.... yummmmmmm we already know what we want. Thank you Grandma & Grandpa Leavitt and we can't forget Aunt Haley thank you too!

That smile melts my heart!

she did not let go of that movie for like ten minutes it was adorable!

Justin bought these adorable sunglasses before she was born. He bought matching little hair thingys but shes still a little too bald for those. Its okay we don't like hair anyway! Its too much of a pain to take care of.

Yo Ma what up? Ya I got two shades don't you?

Haha don't you love the outfit? No pants, no shoes, one sock... no problem! And hey don't bother buttoning up the onesie either!

Funny Girl

Ruthie has Justin and I laughing constantly. She is our little entertainer as Justin would say. The other day we met our friends Katie and baby Addison at the library. Baby Addi sat quietly looking at the books. Well that was just too boring for Ruthie. she decided to put on a little show for Addi and pulled out the books, shelf dividers, anything she could get her hands. Addi thought it was so much fun. she would squeal with delight while I was trying to keep up with Ruthie and put the books back in the right spot. She always has to be moving. she never sits still. When she falls down and bumps her head I always try to comfort her but she just wants to get back to whatever she was doing. She thinks the world is her little jungle gym. She climbs on everything! She always has to climb OVER things instead of just going around. Like our kitchen chairs she climbs through them to look out the window. The other day she was dragging the chair until she pinned herself against the wall it was pretty funny.

Another funny thing she does is put everything in her mouth. I know all babies do this but she puts it in her mouth and keeps it in there while she crawls around. We call her our little doggie because she puts socks in her mouth and crawls around with them hanging out. It reminds me of a dog carrying his bone. She also loves sucking on shoelaces. So gross! We can't leave our shoes out anywhere.

The other day we lost Ruthie's last binky and we had never tried putting her to bed without it. So we went to walmart and the only ones they had for her age was this one with a skull and cross bones that came with another one that had rock n roll with the heart and wings. Justin I think was a little embarrassed at first but I think its so cute. So here is a picture of our Rockin baby!

And one last picture of Ruthie doing her favorite thing in the whole wide world...... playing with daddy! He is number one in her eyes. He is always playing with her and making her giggle. Its adorable. Here are my two favorite people!
